Would you acquit the wicked step sisters? The fifth graders at Boulton Elementary did as part of

Constitution Day. UT State Bar?

Role-playing will be an important part of the lesson plan as nearly 200 judges and lawyers of the Utah State Bar teach about the three independent branches of the government and the importance of an independent judiciary on September 17, the 226th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution. In 2011, the American Bar Association co-authored a report which found that only 38% of Americans could name the legislative, executive, and judiciary branches; 33% couldn’t name any branch. That same year, the Utah State Bar Board of Commissioners created a Civics Committee which developed a one-hour course to be taught in elementary and middle schools. Last year, 174 judges, lawyers and law school students went into 193 classrooms in 15 counties to teach. Kevin Bennett

taught 250 students in eight sessions over two days at Hurricane Middle School. After teaching seven classes totaling 200 to 300 students, Gary Bell eagerly announced, “If you need any help like this in the future, let me know – I’d do it again.” Eric Bailey, social studies teacher at Bonneville Junior High, said. “I want to express my appreciation . . . we are very lucky as Americans to have different branches of government and laws that protect our freedoms. Thank you for coming prepared and sharing your experiences with my students.” Educators who have not registered, or volunteers who are willing to teach, should visit And if you can’t imagine how the wicked step sisters were acquitted, you are welcome to review the elementary school lesson plan.

The Bar, established in 1931, regulates the practice of law under the authority of the Utah Supreme Court. The lawyers of the Bar are working to advance a justice system that is understood, valued, and accessible.

Something Big Is Landing

Children’s museum partnership with Intermountain Healthcare creates emergency department and Life Flight interactive unlike any other.


or years, one of the most popular exhibits at Discovery Gateway: The Children’s Museum of Utah has been the authentic Life Flight helicopter perched high atop the museum’s third floor terrace. The iconic helicopter can be seen by shoppers visiting The Gateway and inspires kids of all ages to imagine piloting the helicopter on a lifesaving rescue mission. Donated by Intermountain Healthcare, the Life Flight helicopter has been the main attraction of the Saving Lives from the Sky exhibit, where kids could also learn how to prevent accidents and stay safe. On September 21, the museum will expand the exhibit 8

exponentially, with the construction of a freestanding Primary Children’s emergency department featuring interactive areas for triage, imaging, dress up, front desk/charge nurse and surgery where children will perform surgeries using customdesigned iPad apps. The new and improved Saving Lives exhibit is sponsored by Intermountain Healthcare, continuing their commitment to the community and sharing lifesaving messages to Discovery Gateway’s quarter-million annual visitors. “We are excited to share this innovative exhibit with the children and families in our community,” says Bruce Jensen, Vice President of

IN Magazine | September 2013

Communications at Intermountain Healthcare. “We believe it will give children a glimpse of what it is like to take care of people and save lives. And it may spark an interest in a future career in healthcare.” The new Saving Lives exhibit is entirely hands-on, with interactive opportunities for up to 40 children at one time. Kids can assume the various roles necessary to take care of patients, from coordinating a Life Flight launch—including two interactive stations in the Command Center for the Operations Controller and Communications Specialists— to caring for patients in a new interactive treatment area in the Life Flight helicopter, to using a gurney


track to transport patients from the helicopter the Primary Children’s emergency department. Once inside the emergency department, kids can choose a role, dress up, and be a part of the hospital emergency team, whether it’s treating patients in the triage area, taking X-rays or a CT/MRI scan in the Imaging area, tracking patient progress at the charge nurse station, or joining the surgical team to perform one of three surgeries via iPad apps, including skull, wrist, or femur fracture surgeries. These custom apps, created locally by Red Olive in collaboration with Discovery Gateway and Intermountain’s creative teams, will guide children through the steps of performing these surgeries. “At Discovery Gateway, it’s our job, every day, to inspire generation upon generation to imagine what they can become,” explains museum CEO, Maria Farrington. “With the help of Intermountain Healthcare, we’re going to allow hundreds of thousands of visitors to get a hands-on feeling for what it’s like to be a helicopter pilot or a surgeon, leading them to a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields as they grow and discover more about the world around them. That’s been our mission for 35 years, and that tradition will continue when we unveil the Saving Lives exhibit on September 21 – the first of its kind anywhere!” Intermountain Saving Lives exhibit will have its grand opening on Saturday, September 21, with a Members’ Only Preview at 9 a.m. and a public opening at 11 a.m. In honor of the museum’s 35th anniversary, admission will be $3.50 all day, with $35 off annual memberships.

Avenues Proper The new eatery hot spot


he Avenues might just be the new hot spot to eat, with several new restaurants leading the way in flavor and creativity. Avenues Proper, located at 376 8th Avenue, Suite C, opened their doors in April, boasting of the talents of their brewmaster and creativity of their chef. This new Avenues pub has everything you could want in a neighborhood eatery: good booze, fresh food and friendly staff, not to mention that they’re family friendly, too. When we walked into Avenues Proper, there were several families eating there—kids in high chairs, dads sipping beer, and moms happily enjoying it all. It’s not often

that you find a pub that so charmingly pleases everyone in the family. And to top it off, there’s ice cream and chocolate at Hatch’s right next door. What family wouldn’t want to end a meal with that? But Avenues Proper isn’t your typical family friendly joint. With duck fat popcorn and pork belly on the menu, you immediately see that this is simply a place for those who love good food and drink. While they have seasonal specials that coordinate with what’s at the peak of harvest, it’s also nice to have a neighborhood joint that you know will continue to serve your favorites year round. One staple of their menu is the carpaccio. Right now they’re serving a wagyu carpaccio, but early in the summer they were serving elk. If you’ve never had carpaccio, it’s a dish of raw meat or fish sliced thinner than paper and commonly served with a light marinade of olive oil and lemon juice. It’s a combination unlike any other, with a dense meaty flavor yet a light and cool texture.

Their shellfish also caught my attention. They serve mussels with coconut and a fresh herb sauce so good that I asked for a spoon. Of course, we had to try the duck fat popcorn, and it tasted just as mysterious as it sounds. The duck fat is produced when they make duck confit in house and reserve the rich sauce for this popcorn. The fat is lightly tossed into the popcorn, leaving you with a light, smoky meat flavor in each handful. It’s brilliant! For a quasi dessert, we ordered the small plate of chicken and waffles. What was most intriguing about this dish is that the chicken is actually a fried, slightly spicy, housemade chicken sausage. Normally, chicken and waffles is served with a fried piece of white meat, but the sausage really takes it over the top. For those who are fans of dipping your sausage into maple syrup, you’re really going to love this version of chicken and waffles! As for the booze, the master

Fall for Fashion You don’t have to travel to New York or Las Vegas to find the latest fashions from NYC Fashion Week. “Leather, bold patterns, olive hues, and white are trends this fall and are available right now in Utah at City Creek Center,” reveals City Creek Center General Manager Linda Wardell. While sitting down to lunch on the patio of Brio Tuscan Grille, City Creek Center’s newest restaurant, Wardell summarized six trends she is seeing in stores for fall.

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?

Follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City.

According to the looks on display at New York Fall Fashion Week, winter white is in. Wear it from head to toe this fall with the Perfect Form City Pant or Lattice Detail Sheath dress from White House | Black Market to get that fresh white look.

Shades of green are a must-have this year, especially emerald. Don’t be afraid to bring emerald into every part of your life: your clothes, your home, and your office. West Elm and Restoration Hardware have everything you will need for a home-refresh this fall. To add some emerald to your life in the simplest way, work it into your makeup routine for a pop-of-color with the Emerald Collection at Sephora.

Beanies aren’t just for skiing.
 Knit beanies are in—and so are all other cute hats for that matter. The Diamond II Beanie at Salomon has a soft knit feel with a textured, feminine look perfect for pulling off that beanie look this fall.

Dots, stripes, and blossoms Classic patterns are all raging again this fall. Don’t be afraid to layer up and partner patterned pieces. The Bessie printed pintuck top and the Michaela pleated wrap skirt at BCBGMAXAZRIA can get you started for the layers and layers of dots, lines, and blossoms you will need to pull off that patterned look.

Get ready to drop and give me 50, because military style is in. Military style is strong this fall for men and women alike. Nordstrom has the must-have finish for your outfit with military-inspired jackets to bring a little edge to your feminine look. For the men, Hugo Boss’s militaryinspired bomber jacket pays tribute to the original olive and orange lining, navy blue and patch pockets. Stylist & Creative Director, Gentri Lee

Walk on the wild side! Bring your leopard print from summer to fall. Animal prints will be in everything from head to toe in bold black and white at Nordstrom. That Classic black leather will also be in abundance at Nordstrom in tees, jackets, and skirts. “Many of these trends are available at various price points,” Wardell says. “I see these trends in our luxury boutiques like Michael Kors and BCBGMAXAZRIA, and other on-trend items can be found at familiar favorites like J Crew, Banana Republic, Cotton On and H&M.” City Creek Center opened in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City in March 2012 and now has 110 stores and restaurants. Nearly a third of the store brands are new to Utah and can only be found at City Creek Center.

Up All Night In SLC

Salt Lake City might not be “The City That Never Sleeps,” but that certainly doesn’t mean there isn’t stuff to do when everyone else is asleep. Here are some of the best afterhour hangouts in the valley has to offer. All you have to do is answer: what kind of up-all-nighter are you?


24 Hour Fitness The middle of the night is when all the best machines are guaranteed free, and by that I mean the ones located in front of the best channels. Other benefits include working out sans judgmental gazes, being able to shout Icona Pop as loud as you want, and doing dance treadmill, which, for the uniformed, is dancing on the treadmill. 1121 East Ashton Avenue, SLC 515 South 700 East, SLC 24 hours

Go for a fun little late night hike around the foothills above the U. There are massive rocks to sit on and forget about your demanding boss or that paper that is soon due.

and the new Dunkin’ Donuts or the old Mickey D’s doesn’t sound appetizing, trek out to the Midvale area. The Garbage Hash is hashtag awesome. 7331 South 900 East, Midvale 24 hours

Calendar Classical Greek Theatre Festival: Oedipus The King 9/6 The play follows Oedipus’ journey to discover the source of the plague affecting Thebes, the killer of the old king Laius, and the truth of his own identity. He himself causes the discovery as he issues an edict, calls witnesses, listens to prophets and family, and moves inevitably to the truth. We see and hear Oedipus in action, and he is called man, hero, savior, master, and tyrant by the chorus and various characters. In his virtues and his vices, Oedipus embodies characteristics often associated with ancient Athens. In a way, the Athenian audience was watching itself onstage. But the play, like so many Greek tragedies, also tells a universal truth--since we are all concerned with identity, who we are, and how we relate to others and to the divine. 7p.m.; $15, Courage Theatre, Jewett Center for the Performing Art - Westminster College, 1700 South 1300 East, SLC Stand Up Comedy 9/6-9/7 Join headliners Saleem and Joanie Coyote.
